The sequel is finally here! Sorry for the very long wait. I had even intended for this to debut on Jan. 1, but alas, I didn't have time. I'm recently finished my application to graduate school and now I'm working on grant and fellowship applications. I currently have no life.

Important editing changes: In the previous story, I had written Wally's children as Iris and Barry. This was indeed their names in an alternate DC story. However in the main DC comics story line (technically only one now after the Infinite crisis story arc), his twins are named Jai and Iris. Because of this, I have gone back in first story and changed Barry to Jai. In this story, Jai will also be used instead of Barry.

This first chapter is longer than usual, so enjoy.

This Ain't the Golden Years II

Chapter 1

Justice League Daily Service Announcement
Date: January 1, 2059

Fellow Leaguers,

We wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Have a nice day.

……………………………

January 1, 2059

First entry of the New Year. My New Year Resolution is to continue being young at heart, even if I'm an old geezer now. Geez, how did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that I was Kid Flash. Now I have grandkids. Oh well. In some ways, it's nice being an old guy. You can get away with more.

Anyway, last night was great. Clark tried to hide out at the Fortress of Solitude, Vic was glued to his computer, the New Gods prepared for war…in short, most of the League freaked out. If I have but one wish, this prank (or non prank) will always be remembered.

Bruce is coming over later today for our New Year's dinner. This should be interesting. And

Excerpt from Wally's Phone Conversation with Oliver Queen:
Time:
10:38 am

Ollie: Hey Wally…

Wally: What?

Ollie: Have you checked your email lately?

Wally: No, why?

Ollie: Clark just spammed my inbox with over 900 messages.

Wally: He what?

Ollie: Yeah, and my inbox is full. I tried sending you an email, but it didn't go through. I was thinking that…

Wally: Let me check. (two seconds later) Damn you Clark!

(Continuation of Wally's journal entry)

And Clark just spammed my inbox! That bastard!

Time: 10:42 am

Lois: Clark, what are you doing?

Clark: Me? Nothing.

Clark's inbox: 900 new messages

Lois: Are those all from Wally?

Clark: I was expecting this.

Lois: (raises an eyebrow)

Lois: What did you do Smallville?

Clark: I'm giving Wally a small taste of what to expect this year.

Gah! That bastard! My inbox is full again! That's it, this is war!

Excerpt from Bruce Wayne's Phone Conversation with Linda Park West:
Time:
10:57 am

Linda: Happy New Year Bruce.

Bruce: Happy New Year, Linda. I'll be over about 2:00. I trust that you and Wally had an…uneventful night.

Linda: You knew, didn't you?

Bruce: I forced it out of Terry. What is Wally up to now? Gloating?

Linda: Actually, he's currently engaged in an online superspeed battle with Clark.

Bruce:

Bruce: I've changed my mind. I think I'll come over now, if you don't mind. I have to see this.

Linda: You might as well, it's very entertaining. Wally's swearing up a storm.

Bruce: How long have they been doing this?

Linda: Nearly twenty minutes, but in superspeed time…

Bruce: …it would be closer to days.

Linda: I married a monkey.

Bruce: Apparently so did Lois. Don't worry, I'm sure it'll let up soon. At the rate they're going, one of them is going to break either a keyboard or the computer.

Linda: Or the internet.

Bruce: If anyone can manage it, it would be them.

Wally: $%&&!!!!!

Linda: What did you break Wally!?

Wally: Clark just locked up my computer! He sent me the League's entire collection of Thanagarian opera and now my computer's frozen!

Bruce: There's no reason it should be frozen unless you tried to download it.

Wally: It automatically started downloading! That bastard! Wait a…Bruce? You're already here?

Bruce: This was too entertaining to miss.

Wally: Well if you want the entertainment to continue, stop that! (points wildly at the computer)

Bruce: I have a strict non-interventionist policy when it comes to other Leaguers' disputes.

Wally: Who invited you over for dinner?

Bruce: What do you say?

Wally: Pleeeease? I'll be in your debt!

Bruce: Good.

Wally's inner thoughts: Crap. What did I just do?

Bruce Wayne shook his head as he watched the aging speedster. Wally's fingers flew rapidly over the keyboard. Seriously, why hadn't he fried the damn thing yet?

"You know, there's such a thing called 'chat'," Bruce said dryly. "It allows instantaneous communication without having to resort to email." The grey haired man spun around in his chair to flash Bruce an amused grin.

"But this is more fun."

"Why haven't you fried your keyboard yet? You've been typing at superspeed the whole time."

"Richie and Cyborg hooked me up," Wally grinned. "They made my computer more resistant to my superpower."

There was a pause as both men stared at the computer.

"Still no reply yet?" Bruce asked dryly.

"No, he's probably off saving the world somewhere."

There was a soft bing from the computer, followed by "You have mail." Then…

"Your inbox is full," the computer said helpfully.

"I think he's back," Wally quipped.

Clark: Mine too. I also accidentally broke the laptop.

Wally: You busted two computers? Clark!

Clark: Lois doesn't know about the laptop yet.

Wally: I guess Richie will be busy tomorrow.

Clark: Or Max. She's good with computers too.

Wally: Truce?

Clark: For now. Let's call this battle a draw.

BBC News

Officials have yet to determine the source of the current internet lockdown. It has recently been reported that nearly 43% of the world's servers have mysteriously crashed. We currently do not know if this was the result of a hacker or simply a glitch in the system.

It has also been reported that many Wikipedia articles have been tampered with and altered. Two of the articles were the Superman and Flash entries. The entries were altered with false information that accused the two heroes of a multiple array of offenses, ranging from nude keg parties to French kissing their female colleagues. It is not believed at this time that this is related to the current internet crisis, as it was most likely the work of someone with a grudge.
